How much for the GTO DM?

Huh?   Not following you... do you mean Gene's bike?

At the end of the video a GTO was for sale.

Oh, now I see what you mean. That's actually just a preview of the next youtube video in line to be played, it's not a part of the video I linked.

That GTO was on eBay last year & sold somewhere in the $5,000 range if I remember right. The video was part of his eBay listing to entice potential buyers. It's also the one Mike Anderson had & sold on ebay earlier. It ended up "down under" with an asking price of around $12,000. Not sure if it ever sold at that price.

Here's the direct link to that video.....

Hehehe, sorry DL, I just post em when I find em.  ;D

Maybe it's time to put your Sherlock Holmes hat on and contact the guy in the video. It apparently went to some businesses show room in Ft. Worth for display. Who knows, it may be for sale and the video guy might be able to give you some contact info.

If not, I'll keep my eyes open & get back to you if I find one that's maybe closer to you.

Sweet Sounds DM!

I wish "Dr. K" had shown more of the bike. From what you can see, it looks like a nicely restored GTR. I did notice at the end that it had lettering on the seat that indicates it's a 1971 bike, although he could just have the incorrect cover on it.

         Well spotted Bert,  I'd be a little worried by that lack of smoke, particularly when revved !!. Surely there should be some, even with a clean burning oil.

So much more socially acceptable running like this, Brian...lol But your point is well taken, these motors were not designed or intended to completely consume the oil. Otherwise how would we get the lovely streams from the muffler joints.  ;D ::) ;D

        Aaaaaaaaaaaaah ...the muffler joints, yes.... forgotten those.  ;D.   Just rewatched the video twice, there is a small puff of smoke from the left pipe when revved so it's getting some oil. Will they run that cleanly with modern 2T oils and the pump set down slightly ?, I hope so.

I'm hoping so too, but my first experience with synthetics awaits.

Bert, give Lucas High Temp Semi-Synthetic Smokeless 2-Stroke Racing Oil a try, it works and "Buddy" recommends highly so you know its good stuff...DL  ;D

Gracias DL...as I said, my new (rebuilt) motor will be my first experience with synthetic 2 stroke oil. Always used Castrol in the days of yore...;-)
I am down with anything recommended by Buddy!
